Domestic and family violence against women began to be considered a crime after the approval of Law n. 11,340, on August 7, 2006, which became known as the Law Maria da Penha. This law creates mechanisms to restrain and prevent aggression based on family cohabitation and has become an instrument of social transformation throughout its 11 years of existence.

In this context, it is important to understand and be able to recognize the types of violence and how this can help countless victims denounce their aggressors.

When the violence ends,
life goes on.

Maria da Penha
Preventing
and combating violence

Information is a great ally of women when it comes to domestic and family violence: it is necessary to know the various forms of aggression and to promote access to the Law Maria da Penha on a large scale.

In addition to educational actions capable of fighting gender stereotypes and inequalities in the power relations between men and women, there are many instruments to assist and protect women in situations of violence.

The world changes
or those who react.
